World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said the institution is ready to support the Ukrainian people in these times of trouble and it hopes for an earliest possible stabilization in the country.
He confirmed work on aid programs for Ukrainian was moving ahead.
At present, the World Bank is implementing a range of projects on the territory of Ukraine totaling $ 3.7 billion but they mostly focus on the housing sector, public utilities and development of transport infrastructures.
